Wolf tags go on sale @ 12:01am 2/16/21! Clear your calendars for next week!
Does anyone have information on who directed the DNR to appeal the ruling and their reasoning?
Drawing is Sunday.
Apparently the administration doesn't like to be told what to do, so try and tie it up in court to run it out of time. One week is a short season. Glad there isn't a ton of snow. Good luck to the permit holders.
Was just looking at the news and saw this article from today. Why would the DNR want to stop the wolf hunt?
Anyone know when the drawing is?
After watching the NRB meeting, my take is that they don't expect the Tribes to harvest any.
The tribes may not kill them, they’re probably taking their allotted share of tags to prevent that number from getting killed.
Surprised the Indian tribes would shoot wolves.
Below is from 2012. This years (2021) quota is 200 wolves and they plan to issue up to 4000 permits @ $49.00 each. We'll find out soon how many application were submitted for the 2021 hunt/trap.
A total of 20,272 people have submitted applications for the drawing for a gray wolf hunting or trapping license for Wisconsin’s first wolf season in more than 60 years. It is scheduled to begin Oct. 15. There were 19,788 applications from Wisconsin residents and 486 from non-residents.
The state Natural Resources Board approved a quota of up to 201wolves that could be harvested during the first season, 85 of which are reserved for Native American Indian tribes within the ceded territory of northern Wisconsin.
The Department of Natural Resources plans to issue 1,160 licenses for the 2012-13 season. Those permits will be awarded by random choice in a drawing that will be held this week. Successful applicants will be notified by letter and then be able to purchase a wolf harvest license for $100 for residents and $500 for nonresidents.
Seems this is nothing more than a quik money grab by our Wisconsin Dnr. (which I guess I'm o.k. with) Sounds like this might be the last hunt we see in many years. I have 3points and figure I might as well apply for a tag. Be an old man by the time another legal opportunity shows up. Hope all those "expert trappers" out there don't shut the season down in a day or 2 like last time and give us hound folks a few days anyways.... Be interesting to see how this all shakes out. Good luck to all who draw.
Kind of sucks that they are first telling you if you drew a tag on the day it opens. Would think they could have done that the day before. I know its rushed...but they are using application/tag services that were already existing and just had to be turned on.
